I love watching the fields as I go to/from work. I know the cows, which fields have cute calves, where I’m going to see the Scissor-tailed Flycatchers with their long tails
or the Red -Tailed hawks.
I love my drives. This is my quiet time…
The next one is one of the ranchers pastures on Hwy 206 right outside of Coleman. He’s already moved his cattle elsewhere, but the field is just starting to show it’s true colors!
Then, our friends own this pasture on Hwy 206…it’s wheat and almost ready for harvesting. I love this field. We’ve seen deer in the evenings and wild turkeys in the early mornings. There is also a huge Horned Owl who patrols this area and all along the bridge and Bayou.
Yep, That’s another oak tree in the middle of the pasture. I haven’t figured out why they leave a tree in the middle…maybe for shade when the cattle are in the pastures? Another one of those WHY questions.
Oh…and the Burkett Bridge…I love this bridge!
See the 20MPH sign…after Mitzy got hit and Spitfire was killed on this very roadway, I raised cain with our precinct councilman. We live at the other end of the bridge and the speeders were coming off the bridge at 45-60 MPH. Way too fast to stop for kids, cattle or cats. He had the road crew out posting signs the very next day! Has it helped? Not really, as there’s no one out here to enforce it. We run our own survellance and get tag numbers to report the speeders. One of the joys of living out in the country. Sometimes, we can even get the County Sheriff to come take care of problems or they’ll get excited when they run a tag.
